Christmas Baking Planner

My mom used to start her Christmas baking ages in advance so that come Christmas she would have plenty of tins full of homemade Christmas cookies stored away in her cold cellar ready for the Christmas dessert table.

Honestly this is the best way to go about it rather than waiting for the week of. Most cookies will store well for weeks if kept in a cool, dry and dark space.

Use this baking planner to sort out what you will make ahead of time and when you will set aside the time to get it done!

Christmas Dinner Cooking Schedule

Honestly, I can get really frazzled when I am trying to cook a holiday meal. I tend to just jump into it and go which can lead to disaster.

It really does help if you sit down ahead of time and plan out the best timing for cooking each item.

Christmas Meal Planner Recipe Cards,

Recipe Cards

I like to use these recipe cards after I have tried a new recipe and found it a success. This way I can keep it in my Christmas planner and use it over again each year.

It’s a nice way to organize all your Christmas favourites in one convenient place.
